Critic Reviews for Cyborg

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

Mr. Van Damme's Gibson is so opaque that he makes Mel Gibson's Mad Max seem weepy by comparison.

Few genres amuse me more than post-apocalyptic fantasies about supermen fighting for survival. Cyborg is one of the funniest examples of this category, which crosses Escape from New York with The Road Warrior but cheats on the budget.

It's just another martial arts film, all dressed up with no place to go.

Martial arts fans will find plenty of action to hold their interest here, but those in search of plot and character are advised to look elsewhere.

Audience Reviews for Cyborg


Another Terminator style plot line and a Mad Max rip of sorts, its not too bad for an early effort, when I was young I watched it purely for the action and martial arts sequences, it hasn't got much else. The main baddie is pretty evil looking and as usual the final showdown at the end of every Jean Claude film is a martial arts fest and pretty cool.

The worst Van Damme movie I've seen, and I've seen nearly all of his
